it was amazing

Boris the cat loves his catnaps. When he awakes and prepares to take his walk, he notices something very strange. His shadow looked like it might belong to a mouse. Not just any mouse, but a sneaky, squeaky mouse named Vernon. How could this shadow swap have taken place? Without his cat shadow how would Boris make the birds flutter when he bounces by the bird bath? Even worse, what will the other cats think when they see Boris and his very small shadow? It will be tricky getting his shadow back. You'll have to read more to see if Boris succeeds.

The fun and quirky illustrations will have kids learning shapes. Parents can talk to young readers about cats, mice and birds. Lots of colors can also be found for young readers to learn along with lots of other objects kids will have a great time identifying. Simple sentences with easy to recognize words will have kids reading this book over and over.
